“When you wish upon a star”…one of the most iconic Disney movies, Pinocchio, is now out on Blu-Ray/DVD! You can join Jiminy Cricket and sing along right at home to the what is probably the most famous Disney song of them all! We received our copy for review and love having these classic movies at home (and on the go with Disney Movies Anywhere – so nice while traveling). To celebrate this Disney release, I thought I’d share a few creative, fun ideas that would work perfectly for a family Pinocchio-themed movie night or even a Pinocchio party!
Here’s a few fun things we found:

Fun! So, be sure to bring home your copy of Pinocchio and have some family movie night fun! There are some great bonus features, including:
- Walt’s Story Meetings: Pleasure Island – The Pleasure Island scene in “Pinocchio” had much more development than what is seen in the film. Join Pixar’s Pete Docter and Disney historian and author J.B. Kaufman as they explore artwork recently discovered in Disney’s animation research library revealing some of the attractions, gags and games, which Disney animators created for this iconic location of the film, that never made it on screen.
- In Walt’s Words – “Pinocchio” – Hear Walt himself discuss the making of “Pinocchio” through archival recordings and interviews.
- The Pinocchio Project: “When You Wish Upon a Star” – Music influencers Alex G, Tanner Patrick and JR Aquino from Disney’s Maker Studios, a global leader in short-form videos, gather in a creative workspace to create their rendition of the film’s signature song, “When You Wish Upon a Star,” and produce a fresh new music video.
- Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in “Poor Papa” – This recently restored and scored 1927 short features Oswald the Lucky Rabbit who gets multiple visits from the stork and is forced to attempt various methods to help stop the onslaught of baby deliveries.
- Classic Bonus Features – These offerings from prior home entertainment releases include hours of bonus material, such as the making of “Pinocchio,” deleted scenes, sing-alongs, storyboards and theatrical trailers.
